Brief History of the District
Samish Water District was formed in 1970 to provide sewer service to homes around Lake Samish with failing and inadequate septic systems. The District operates as a municipal government agency under chapter 57 Revised Code of Washington. In early 1975 Samish Water District purchased the property on Nulle Road with plans to build an administrative office and sewage tratment facility. In late 1975 construction of the sewage system began with funding made possible by Federal and State Grants, the sale of revenue bonds and assessments paid by property owners. The District's sewer system stretches from North Lake Samish to Highway 20 at which point the sewage is delivered to the City of Burlington for final treatment. Today Samish Water District collects and treats the sewage of approximately 470 residential customers and 30 commercial customers in Whatcom and Skagit Counties.
